Extent: 0.2 Linear Feet
expand icon Abstract
Joseph Jedeikin was born in Kobe, Japan to a Russian mother and Latvian father. After living in Switzerland as a child, his family moved to Shanghai in 1940 to escape German persecution against Jews which they felt would eventually reach them if they stayed in Europe. The family lived in the French Concession, and Jedeikin attended the Public and Thomas Hanbury School before graduating in 1945 and leaving China in 1946 to attend university in America. The collection consists of  Jedeikin’s membership card for the local Y.M.C.A. in Shanghai, and the armband worn by Jedeikin as a member of the Foreign Pao Chia during World War II.
